Course Description

Dr. Benjamin will lead us in an examination of timeless philosophical issues embodied in Voltaire’s “Candide” and Tolstoy’s “The Death of Ivan Ilych.” For example, (1) What is the basis of knowledge? (2) Why, if God is all-knowing, all-powerful, and perfectly good, is there so much pain, suffering, and premature death in the world? and (3) How can life have meaning and value in the face of mortality?(IN-PERSON)
